NEW BRUNSWICK — A former investigator in the Prosecutor’s Office entered a guilty plea to obstructing the administration of law by admitting that he had improperly contacted another law enforcement agency for non-investigatory reasons, Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce J. Kaplan announced Monday.
Brian Lubeski, 46, of Allentown appeared before the Hon. Frederick P. DeVesa, P.J.Cr. on Friday, August 20. At that time he admitted that, as a law enforcement officer, he contacted the New Jersey State Police seeking a license plate lookup while not conducting a criminal investigation. This information came to light in connection with an unrelated investigation.
Lubeski, who began working in the Prosecutor’s Office on June 27, 2005, was suspended from duty on Jan. 22 and relinquished his position on Jan. 29. Prior to working at the Prosecutor’s Office, Lubeski was a New Jersey State Trooper, retiring after 20 years.
When he is sentenced by DeVesa on Nov. 1, 2010, he is subject to one year probation, $1,000 fine and will be permanently disqualified from holding governmental employment. He also is required to make restitution to the Prosecutor’s Office in the amount of $4,600 for equipment assigned to him during the course of his employment with the Prosecutor’s Office but not returned upon his termination. Additionally, a charge of Misapplication of Entrusted Property will be dismissed at the time of sentencing.
